Trial Watch Review For Randwick : 30th July 2019

Chris Scholtz reviews the Randwick barrier trials on July 30.


Soft 7 (Course Proper); Heavy 8 (Randwick Grass)

17 Heats – Course Proper 2 x 900m (Group/Listed); Randwick Grass 1 x 1200m (Open); 6 x 1050m (2 Open; 4 2YO); 8 x 735m (2 Open; 6 2YO)

A set of strong trials despite the track conditions with the class acts getting use of the better ground on the course proper. There were some obvious standouts in the Group trials for the Group horses on the course proper

Alizee (James Cummings): Simply too classy for her rivals in the first open heat over 900m on the course proper. We know she prefers being on top of the ground but she had no problems coping with the soft going as she trucked to the line under a big hold from Hugh Bowman in much quicker time (54.32; 35.00) than the other Group heat, showing that she has come on in the right manner since her first-up trial on July 19. Obviously ready to run to her best when she resumes.

Libertini  (Anthony Cummings): Hard not to be impressed by her effort in the second of the Group heats over 900m, doing it very easily to finish an unextended second to Dawn Passage in another confirmation of her undoubted potential. She's a powerful unit and is sure to challenge the best fillies in the spring.

Anaheed (Peter & Paul Snowden): Had no trouble putting away some handy rivals in her 1050m heat on the inside grass, noting that she laps up affected ground having recorded two of her three wins last season in soft and heavy going. Her quality was evident as she picked up the leader with plenty in hand over the last 200m, putting a good margin on them late and running the quickest closing sectional of the 2YO heats over the trip (64.43; 36.00).

Evening Slippers (Gai Waterhouse/Adrian Bott): This $1.8 million yearling showed plenty last season and her Impressive effort to win her 735m heat on the inside grass, running the fastest closing sectional of the 2YO heats (44.16; 34.20), was strong confirmation that she is maturing into a class act. Dictated from the front and could have gone a lot quicker as Tim Clark kept her speed well in check over the last 200m.
